CLACKMANNANSHIRE will play host to a summer of creativity as part of a new project to show the artistic side of young Scots.

Artwork or installations created by young people will be left in popular places in local communities across Scotland for people to discover.

The project comes from the Cashback Creates campaign and was launched earlier this week until the end of July.

Each item will have a tag attached to it explaining about cashback funding and encouraging people to share their find on social media using #CashBackCreates.

There will be a number of different spots to see art in the Wee County including the Dumyat Centre in Menstrie.

A spokesperson for the campaign said: “Visit the Dumyat Centre in Menstrie? You might just spot a life-size graphic pop up - made by young people, you'll see it covered in quotes and photographs. Find it, get a great selfie and post it to social media to be part of this national treasure hunt.

“This project will provide a series of community based pop up drama workshops and performances. It will provide high quality community-based drama provision in an area that has an identified gap in this expressive art form, allowing young people to access performance opportunities that are supportive, inclusive and accessible.

Their campaign will also focus on encouraging young people to get involved in theatre by using their imagination to create a performance and they also want the local community to come and get involved, see the area through a young person’s eyes.

The Cashback for Creativity Open Fund, administered by YouthLink Scotland through delivery partner, Creative Scotland and funded by Scottish Government has awarded a total of £324,000 to 45 community-based arts project across the country, which will reach over 4,927 young people in local communities.
